We can add two or more devices on the same rack unit by creating the corresponding hardware model with appropriate width ratio and using the "X" position parameter to identify the position of the device on the rack unit.
For example if you have three devices which need to be added on the same rack unit, first we need to create a corresponding hardware model:
Here we used the width ratio 1/3 because we have three devices, for two devices we need 1/2 and so on.
Then we need to identify the position for each device, for this we need to use the default value which is equal to 2520 and divide this value on the number of devices needed, in this case we divide this value on three:
- 0 will be the position of the first devices (on the left)
- 840 the position for the middle device
- 1680 the position for the third one
The same steps need for 2 devices 2520/2 and for four etc.
To mount all these devices, go to the rack page, then under "Devices in this rack" tab mount them by identifying the corresponding "Position" value
Finally we will get all these devices displayed on the same rack unit on the rack layout page
